4 Reasons why Student Travel is more of a Learning Experience

medium_gran_caribe_real_576e60a995118a714af4c061480c5675

“What one learns in a classroom is just a very small part of the learning process. The real learning starts when you cross borders and travel miles for the real knowledge”. This is one famous quote that most of us agree with. Yes, believe it or not, you can learn a lot in a trip or vacation that you thought would be only relaxing and revitalizing.

  1. Meet, greet and intermingle with different people

One of the reasons why travelling will be a wonderful learning experience is the fact that you will meet, communicate and interact with different people. Communicating with other people can be a perfect bridge for the social, international, political, religious, financial differences between the people of the world.

Interacting with other people gives you a front row seat to their way of doing things and living life; something that might actually impact you positively when it comes to relating to people who are different from you.

  1. Get knowledge of new places

There are so many places to go that you cannot exhaust all even in a year. The world is made up of beautiful scenery, eye-catching flora and fauna, memorable adventures, sumptuous local and international cuisines, to mention but a few. Therefore, travelling to different parts of the world will not only be entertaining and relaxing but also a wonderful learning experience.

For example, unless you visit the MaasaiMara (a famous wildlife destination in Kenya, Africa),how will you get a chance to witness the 7th wonder of the world? Watching the wildebeest migration as it happens will be a delightful learning experience that you cannot afford to lose.

  1. Get a chance to try new things

One of the main reasons we travel is to get out of our shell. Travelling comes with a list of surprises and whether it is staring at a menu that has different meals that you know nothing about, or jumping on a train to a place that you have never been to, or even shaking hands with strangers, travelling will for sure make you do things you probably have never done before.

With STS Travel, all you need to do is relax, put yourself out there and turn your situations to wonderful experiences. Step out of your comfort zone and try out even what seems out of the ordinary. This will make your trip more enjoyable and memorable. 

  1. Learn a language that is different from yours

Visiting new places and meeting new people is a step towards learning a different language. Owing to the fact that you have to communicate with the people you find in your destination is indication that you will grab a part of their local language, right? After all, you will have to order a meal from the local menus, ask for directions or even try to understand the street signs. Trust you me, by the time your trip comes to an end, you will learn a word or two.

4 reasons why you need to have a lawyer in Houston

topaward

The law is such a complicated segment of the society. There are certain laws that you may not know exist until you actually commit a crime. It is funny how the only way that you may get to know about the existence of some of the laws is only if you commit the offense or someone close to you does.

This is exactly why you need to have a lawyer. Imagine a situation whereby you are caught on the wrong side of the law. This could be the trickiest of situations you may have ever imagined. You may not be able to handle all that pressure on your own. This is when the thought of having a lawyer strikes your mind. That is the best solution that you can ever get.

In some situations, even your die-hard fans may not be in a position to help you out. There are some situations where only a lawyer will be your refuge. This is the one person who is well versed with all that appertains to the law and has got everything it takes to ensure that you win your case.

You therefore should not hesitate to look out for a lawyer in such sticky situations; and not just any lawyer but one who is Voted top 100 Trial Lawyers. It is therefore crucial that you have at least one lawyer’s contact. Here are 4 reasons why you need to have a lawyer:

  • Avoid problems

You notice that sometimes you may be putting yourself in tricky situations, such as like choosing to have no representation in court. This should be the last thing on your mind and the worst mistake that you can ever make. Going in for a case without a lawyer should be the greatest of your fears.

Questions may arise, some of which you may not be able to answer them, or you may not even know how to answer them.

  • Competition

Think of the court of law as a battle field. If your other opponent comes in with a lawyer, you are most likely to lose the case. This should make you fear the most. You need to ensure that you have a lawyer to represent you in court due tosuch reasons, pure completion of a race that you definitely have to be the winner.

  • You are more likely to win a case with a lawyer

This is because a lawyer will know when to bend and just how far to go low to ensure that you get to win the case. You on the hand may not be able to do that on your own.

  • You may have no knowledge whatsoever of the law

Being in your position as the offender of the law, you may have absolutely no knowledge of the law, or at least that which can help your case. This is the more reason why you need to have a lawyer.

BIO

Kelvin Harris is a 31 year old young man who is a practicing lawyer back in his home town. Kelvin says that you need to look for a lawyer who is Voted Top 100 Trial Lawyers in order to win your case. He also loves to travel, so during his free time he is always travelling far and wide.

Philip B. Oud Royal Forever Shine is golden

imgres

As a Philip B. fan, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Oud Royal Forever Shine Shampoo and Conditioner.  Not all shampoos live up to their name and Philip B. always does for me. If bounce and shine are what you are looking for, look no further. What makes this newest shampoo so unique, is its time-released botanical moisturizers. Moisturizing botanicals are treated with high-vapor energy, breaking them into tiny molecules that sink in and strengthen hair from the inside out.”  according to Philip b.,  “A time-released botanical delivery system (made with natural Safflower Oleosomes) infuses hair with lasting glossiness, bounce, and the light, seductive scent of pure Oud.” 

The scent is indeed magnificent. I won’t even consider a shampoo if the shampoo doesn’t smell fantastic. I have fine curly hair and after using the shampoo and conditioner I immediately noticed a smooth texture to my wet hair. After my hair air dried, I had soft bouncy curls that even held up when I slept on them. Oud Royal Forever Shine will definitely  de-frizz your curls leaving you with body and fullness. Oud Royal Forever Shine is Paraben free, color & keratin-treatment safe.

Harnessing the Beauty Benefits of Lemons

unnamed-6

NOCTURNE MASCARA
The Lemon Peel is formulated into our lash conditioning and lengthening mascara because the extract of the fruit’s peel is effective as a purifying disinfectant, too. Hynt Beauty does not use any artificial preservatives, only natural ones, so Lemon Peel Extract is one of our key players along with other organic extracts as Cinnamon Bark and Goldenseal Extract!

A Healthy & Beautiful Twist on Lemon Bars: Abby Phon’s Original HYNT Recipe

unnamed-5

 

Lemons are Amazing for your Health & Beauty

Like all citrus fruits, they’re high in Vitamin C but they also have Vitamins A, E and various B Vitamins PLUS essential minerals like copper, calcium, iron,  magnesium, potassium, zinc and phosphorus for our body to function smoothly. In addition to these nutrients, lemons are rich in flavonoids and have well documented anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, too.

In addition to all the great things lemon does IN your body, it can also be amazing on the outside, too. Used properly, lemon juice can help control acne, eczema, sunburns and wrinkles on your skin as well as with dandruff and hair loss.

Morning Lemon Tip 

Lemon juice is alkalizing and detoxifying – a great way to rebalance your stomach in the morning.  Having a glass of lemon juice mixed in water first thing in the morning can help clean out your system, get your digestion going and aid in weight loss.

WHAT YOU NEED

For the Filling:

  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight (ideally 4+ hours. If you are in a rush, soak at least 20 minutes in boiling water), drained

  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk, refrigerated overnight

  • 1/2 cup lemon juice (~2 large lemons)

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 2 tbsp arrowroot powder

  • Zest of one lemon

  • 1/8 tsp pink Himalayan salt

For the Crust:

  • 1 cup organic rolled oats

  • 1 cup raw almonds

  • 4 tbsp coconut oil, melted

  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar

  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

  • 1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line an 8×8 inch pyrex dish or baking pan with parchment paper

    Add oats, almonds, salt, and coconut palm sugar to a Cuisinart or high speed blender and mix on high until finely ground

    Transfer to a mixing bowl and add maple syrup and melted coconut oil

    Mix well until a loose dough forms. If too dry and crumbly, add a bit more melted coconut oil

    Transfer to pyrex dish and press evenly and firmly into the bottom

    Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the edges are golden brown

    Remove from oven and let cool slightly before adding filling

    While crust is baking, scoop the solid cream from the top of the can of coconut milk and add to Vitamix or high-speed blender

    Add cashews, maple syrup, lemon juice & zest, arrowroot and salt and blend until smooth

    When crust is cooled slightly, pour the filing over top and bake for 20-25 minutes, until center is no longer liquidy

    Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly

    Refrigerate overnight (or at least a few hours) to completely set

             

    ENJOY!

Face Paint for a Healthier Halloween!

Halloween is quickly approaching, and it’s time to nail your family’s costumes down. In order to make sure you stay healthy while participating in the fun, Sophia Ruan Gushee, author of A-to-Z of D-Toxing: The Ultimate Guide To Reducing Our Toxic Exposures, has created the ultimate recipe for nontoxic DIY face paint that the whole family can have fun making together!

There are many dangerous toxicants found in conventional paints, including lead, nickel, cobalt, and chromium. This recipe is quick, easy, and a great alternative to the common varieties out there:

Ingredients
· 1 ½ tbsp cornstarch

· ¼ tbsp all purpose flour

· 2 tbsp honey

· ½ tbsp water

· Natural food color (seek nontoxic products on Amazon, or use household foot items that can act as natural dyes)
· Mix the cornstarch and flour in a bowl. Add the honey and water to your mixture. It should create a thick, gluey substance that resembles a paste. If the paint is too thin, add more cornstarch and flour. If too thick, add extra water.

unnamed-1

Divide the mixture into separate bowls, and add your coloring. For example, you can use turmeric for yellow, and paprika for red.

unnamed-1

·         The paint comes out a bit more thick and gooey than conventional face paints, but the colors come out beautifully and stay on for hours.

unnamed-2-1

·         While the paint dries well, the honey component makes the paint slightly sticky to the touch. Avoid touching the paint after it is applied.
